Marine surprise homecoming

Posted: Updated:

On the 10th anniversary of the start of the war in Afghanistan, an Albany Marine returns home from that war and surprises his children.

Michael Regan stepped off his plane at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport this evening and greeted his three kids who had no idea he was coming home.

They thought they were there to help welcome someone else home.

It was an emotional homecoming for Regan after seven months at Camp Dwyer in southwest Afghanistan.

Regan says, "I'm very proud more proud of my marines all of them performed with great distinction and I'm just glad that we all came in safely."

The first thing he wants to do is get back to some modern conveniences and good old American food.
